Thank you for visiting Makovicka Physical Therapy’s Knee Pain and Injury page. We have 5 locations in Omaha and the surrounding suburbs and would love to hear from you if you are experiencing any of the signs and symptoms below.
Knee pain is very common considering the constant load we place on the joints. If the pain persists without any attempt to determine the cause, overuse (or chronic) knee injuries may arise.
Acute injuries happen suddenly and often occur in athletes. They can be caused by direct blows to the knee or from twisting, bending, or falling on the knee in an awkward position. A variety of exercises can be done without exercise equipment to help strengthen the muscles that stabilize the knee.

- Illiotibial (IT) Band Syndrome
- Plica Syndrome
- Patellafemoral Pain
- Meniscus Degeneration
